Dear All,

As many of you might have heard on the news, the city of Van, located on the eastern part of Turkey has experienced a devastating earthquake with the magnitude of 7.2. As of now 550 people have been reported dead and 2300 wounded. Death toll is expected to rise because there are lots of people trapped in collapsed buildings and the cold weather makes the situation much more difficult.

Believing in the community spirit we have here at Brandeis, we wanted to ask for your support on this matter.

Here are 2 easy ways to make a contribution to the relief efforts:

1- Turkish American Cultural Society of New England Website allows you to make non-taxable donations through PayPal, at the desired amount

2- Global Giving website allows you to make $10 donations through just a TEXT MESSAGE or you can also make a donation at the desired amount from the website.

Thank you all for your awareness and your support.
